-====== Keyboard Editing ====== 
-===== Entering hieroglyphs ===== 
-To enter signs with the keyboard, click in the main window (the one that displays the actual hieroglyphic text, not in the one with the so-called "​Manuel de codage"​). 
-When you type a letter or a number in the main window, this letter or number appears in the small panel in the bottom left panel of JSesh. This allows you to type "​Manuel de Codage"​ codes. 
-  * Lots of signs have phonetic codes, which correspond to their translitteration;​ 
-  * all signs are accessible through their code in Gardiner'​s grammar. To find the code, you can look at the "​hieroglyphs"​ menus. 
-Once the code is typed, you must validate it. To validate, type one of **space, ':',​ '​*',​ '​-',​ enter** 
-The sign will be added to the hieroglyphic text. 
-Phonetic codes can correspond to more than one sign. For instance, iw corresponds to one of {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw1.png}},​{{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw2.png}},​ {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw3.png}},​ {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw4.png}} and {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw5.png}}. The "​official"​ sign for iw is {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw1.png}} according to the manuel . However, you might want another sign. In this case, it's quite simple : press the **space bar**, and the system will circle through the possibilities,​ one at a time. 
-Your last choice will be retained the next time you type the code in this session. 
-===== Grouping signs ===== 
-The sign you type when validating can be used to group the hieroglyphs. Both '​space'​ and '​-'​ have the simple effect that the next sign will be added in a new cadrat. 
-  * ':'​ and '​*'​ will add the next sign respectively below and besides the last sign entered. 
-  * '​enter'​ has two consequences : it validates a sign (if there is one), and it adds a new line. 
-If no code has been entered (that is, if the code window is entered), the previous grouping sign type will group the last two cadrats. It looks a bit strange, but you will see that it's quite natural. you can use it to group signs as an afterthough. 
-==== Exempli gratia ==== 
-If you want to type the word  
-, you can : 
-type '​p',​ then '​*',​ '​t',​ ':',​ '​pt'​ 
-type '​p',​ '​t',​ then '',​ space (which, in sort, validates the ''​),​ pt, ':',​ and space.
